and it kind of is.
Because ECE is filled with daring visionaries and bright minds who engage, imagine and invent.
We are the masters of power and energy and light and systems that can turn science fiction into living, breathing science.
We are the force that connects people and technologies with elegant devices that fit in the palm of your hand and colossal systems that are beyond imagination.
We are the spark, the energy, and the catalyst — the generators of ideas, champions of possibility and the fuel for change.
We dream big, bet big, and see it through, because we know it’s our job to help shape a better world for all.
Is that magic? Almost. And we’d love to show you how it works.
Join us for a tour, check out our facilities, and meet some of our amazing students.
